    doesn't pass the smell test?

    But (local) Sanford, Fla., Investigator Chris Serino was instructed to not press charges against Zimmerman because the state attorney's office headed by Norman Wolfinger determined there wasn't enough evidence to lead to a conviction,
    Nevermind whether Wolfinger has his head up his ass or not, since when do they make decisions like this? The local says "please do" to something cut-and-dried and the state says "no"? Really?

    Uh-huuuh. This whole kettle of fish is really starting to smell....

    It is time to #Occupy Media.

      It is highly irregular to not have an inquest at least.

      A Catholic, Jew, Muslim and Buddhist walk into Al Aqsa Mosque. Buddhist immediately exclaims: "excuse me I appear to be in the wrong joke."

        him for hours.

        Cops are always very agressive -- almost everyone is guilty in their eyes.

        The prosecutors can be just as bad -- they love to take cases they think the can win. But they hate to lose.

        The prosecutor thought this case -- at the time (as the investigation can proceed w/o an arrest) was a loser. So he did not press charges.
